Happy Easter everyone! He is risen. He is risen indeed!
I really wish I could be in my church for Easter service. We are visiting Doug’s family in the Green Bay area. And if I was going to miss church, this is where I would rather be.
The Easter bunny came last night as expected. I bought the boy’s baskets last year after Easter (I got a really good deal!) — but we still had Owen. It hurt to take out the brand new baskets — looking at four but only having three children who would go hunting for them on Easter morning. I packed all of them anyways. I couldn’t leave Owen’s behind.
When assembling the baskets, I put grass in all four of them. I assembled the triplet’s baskets first. So proud of all the great finds I got for them! There were microphones that sing. There were two bunny books. Magnets for the fridge at home. Goldfish crackers and fruit snacks. Pinwheels …
Then I assembled Jaden’s basket. Still not sure what I was going to do with the Owen’s. Then I started to fill the easter eggs with jelly beans. I then decided I would use Owen’s basket for the candy. That way I didn’t have to figure out how to fit them into the already full baskets. Done.
Owen was still apart of the family. Not in an obvious way. But I know morning when they reach for a candy filled egg this morning, they are sharing in Owen’s peace. They are taking a piece of their brother to enjoy. I thank Owen for looking out for his brothers. I pray that he lets them know him in a way only he can.
I can only imagine what it’s like to celebrate Easter in heaven. There must be one HUGE party going on. Party on Owen – show them how us Medal/Bissings do it!
PS I can’t wait to post pictures of the boy’s Easter outfit – Thank you TeeTee
